From Syonan to Fuji-go


From Syonan to Fuji-go


During the Japanese Occupation in World War II, some 3,000
men, women and children left Singapore to form a Catholic
settlement in the jungles of Malaya, near the town of Bahau.
Based on extensive interviews and access to private manuscripts,
this book provides a vivid account of life in Bahau, and presents
new insights into those who were there, why they went, and the
lasting legacy of Bahau on their lives. It is also a moving account
of the author’s journey of discovery about her mother, who was
interned at Bahau.

Fitting memory to those who died, honourable recognition of those
who survived, and an important resource for future generations,
this is essential reading for those who seek an understanding of an
important part of Singapore’s history.

“This book is a valuable contribution to our understanding of this
period in Singapore’s history.” – Paul Madden, British High Commissioner to Singapore, 2007-11

“Fiona Hodgkins’s excellent encyclopaedic chronicle of Fuji-Go
is one of great value and significance – historical, informative ...
beautifully written, enjoyable and absorbing.” – F.A.C. “Jock” Oehlers, Author of That’s How It Goes: The Way of the 90-Year Life Journey of a Singapore Eurasian
